Ballerina Simone Clarke is a member of the BNP. Which is a deplorable, but entirely legal political party. And assorted people are calling on the English Ballet to dismiss her, or at least issue a statement distancing themselves from her political beliefs. Quite rightly, the English ballet have declined to comment. Your political leanings, be they Nazi BNP, Communist or even war starting Blairite scumbag, are, subject to the laws of the land, your own. Given that her partner is a Cuban of Chinese decent ms Clarke is apparently not racist. I suspect she is politically not the sharpest knife in the draw, bless her, but that is not a crime. So dance away Simone, and if you have secret dreams of gassing Jews that’s your affair.
Unfortunately the new European far right political group ‘Identity, tradition and sovereignty’ don’t particularly keep their dreams of gassing Jews secret. The party, includes French NF members Bruno Gollnisch (awaiting a verdict on holocaust denial charges) & Le Penn, Assorted Romanian anti Jew, anti gypsy members, Flemish Nationalists, the uber Nazi Austrian freedom party & Mussolini’s granddaughter (not that I’m suggesting that fascism is genetic, she just happens to be a fascist). This delightful collection of MEP’s has been joined by former UKIP member & (alleged) benefit fraudster Ashley Mote. UKIP (not known for their left wing tendencies) are apparently horrified & have called on Mr Mote to resign his seat.
Not often I agree with UKIP but Mr Mote you are a disgrace to this country & everything it stands for. Resign damn you. I do, of course, have no objections to you pursuing a career in dance.
